December will be the most unpredictable month of the year. Fasten your seatbelts and read on.
The month starts with the retrograde station of Chiron on the 1st of December. We all have some wounds, even if we had the happiest childhoods and even if we now meditate and do yoga daily. Being humans is about accepting that there is a part of us that will always bleed. But is accepting and releasing whatever feelings of inadequacy we may have – the only way to deal with the wound of human existence.
On the 2nd Mercury enters Capricorn and we will get a bit more serious and achievement-oriented. Or, at least our communication will become more goal-oriented. After we explored life’s endless opportunities when Mercury was in Sagittarius, now is time to choose what we want to do, and simply go for it. Determination is, the way can be found!
On the 7th of December Venus enters Aquarius so for four weeks or so we will all want to love and be free. During Venus’s stay in Aquarius (7th of December -2nd of January) we are developing the skills of detachment and objectivity. We need to learn how to detach from the norms around us, so that we don’t get swept into just doing the same old things we are expected to do, which will keep us away from knowing who we really are.
On the 10th of December we have Sun conjunct Saturn – time to get serious, go into details, and get real about what we want to do with our life.
On the 11th Sun is trine Uranus – one day later, we will suddenly know what we want to do with our life: follow our passions, be free etc.…until…
…the Full Moon in Gemini kicks in on the 13th on December. Expect some “interesting” discussions and revelations, I won’t say more at this point, but will write an article about this Full Moon closer to the date.
On the 19th of December we have two astro events: Firstly, Mars enters Pisces and we will be driven to make our dreams come. Be careful what you wish for. Mercury turns retrograde in the same day which can result in confusion and mental scatter.
On the 21st Sun enters Capricorn marking the winter Solstice in the Northern hemisphere and the summers solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. This is a point of culmination, so everything you’ve been doing since 21st of March (when we had the beginning of the astrological year when the Sun moved into Aries) is likely to manifest now.
On the 24th we have Saturn trine Uranus and one day later Venus trine Jupiter. Venus trine Jupiter is a five star transit and is best to enjoy it by going out, having fun and something nice to eat.
Saturn trine Uranus is a bit different. You see, these planets meet so rarely in the sky, that even a trine (an aspect that is far from being as eventful as a conjunction or a square) will influence us somehow. Saturn is all about structure and Uranus is all about freedom. A trine means what we will find (or aim to find) the perfect balance between the two.
On the 26th of December Jupiter opposes Uranus – this transit is another “biggie” because is not that often that two slow moving planets like Jupiter and Uranus get the chance to connect. We only have this transit once every 12 years! Jupiter is “larger than life” “I see opportunities everywhere” “I see trees are green, skies of blue” and Uranus is about freedom, change and “I could not care less about rules, the energy must flow, even if we need to start a revolution”. Can you imagine what will happen when these two titans will clash in the sky? I will definitely mark the date in my calendar and I WILL read the news.
On the 28th the New Moon in Capricorn is conjunct Mercury retrograde – expect messages from old friends and some nice time with your family. Go for a social gathering or do some networking, you never know where a business opportunity may arise. Like with every New Moon, events are likely to happen today, especially if you are a Capricorn or if your Rising sign is in Gemini or Virgo.
On the 29th Uranus turns direct – expect the unexpected, especially that Uranus stations exactly after the New Moon. Surprises all around 😉
The year ends with Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces on the 31st of December – don’t indulge too much into alcohol but DO take a trip with your imagination and dream about the endless possibilities that 2017 may bring. Time to act upon your wildest dreams!
